LOOKIE what I found!

Sunday, September 11, 2011

They have closed down some railroad tracks near my house. I now have a new route to add to my walking. It is fun to not always be on asphalt. I even saw a fawn! This is sooooo cool!

I found out that walking on this type of terrain is a real workout too! My knee didn't hurt but I was huffing and puffing as if I were running! As soon as I was back on the streets, my knee was twinging again. I will be utilizing this trail a lot more on future walks!

I hope your weekend is going well. We started the morning off with a moment of silence to recognize the day. We are so lucky. Those folks that passed away on 9-11 didn't have the choice to improve their lives and to finish living them to their potentials. We have no excuse to abuse ourselves. Let's keep getting healthy and remember just how fortunate we are.

    Great idea! If you're ever around Helena, the state parks have turned about 12 miles of old track into a beautiful trail. We drove down there last year just to check it out. Sooo peaceful and pretty! emoticon

    Hee-hee... love the trail. We have a whole network of former RR grades turned into hike/bike trails in our town, and they are great!

    You've got a great attitude about making the most of our lives and being grateful! Thanks for that reminder.
